photo by Queen of Seattle
In a city laced with canals, lakes and salt waterways, a smart way to see the sights is from the water. The Queen of Seattle paddle steamer is travel as it was 100 years ago on Seattle waters. Although the vessel was built in the early 1980s, it was outfitted with steam propulsion engines dating to 1884. The Queen served in California and Alaska before she moved to Seattle in 2009. Since then, she’s been wellreceived; thousands of passengers have seen the Emerald City from her decks and lounges.
Whether you are a visitor or resident, you’ll learn about Seattle during the Yukon Gold Rush days, along with fascinating facts about the present-day’s city’s sights.
The Queen of Seattle paddles from her home dock at South Lake Union, and cruises the shores of the lake before heading up the Ship Canal to Salmon Bay and back. You’ll pass under the Fremont and Ballard bridges for some postcard perfect views of Seattle. The crew even throws in an 1890s cabaret show on the return trip.
If a specialty cruise is more your style, you can solve a whodunit on a Murder Mystery Cruise or arrange a private cruise for up to 275 of your closest friends.
